What is the Best Free Website Builder? Well, in this article I am going to share with you a sneak peek of the best free website builder… are you ready? In my opinion from years of experience, it is WordPress. In this article, I am also going to explain why I know that it is the best and how you can start using WordPress right away…
Why is WordPress the Best Free Website Builder?
I used to used DreamWeaver for my web development projects. For that, you really needed to know some programming to get the functionality that you wanted. Although it was workable, it was more time consuming and there was definitely more of a learning curve. A continual learning curve it seemed.
With WordPress, you don’t need to know any programming at all to create a stunning and fully functional website. The website that you are on right now was built with WordPress. I did not use any programming at all. I am very pleased with this website and it is simply made up of content, plugins and me customizing a pretty awesome WordPress theme.
My favorite theme is AccessPress Pro. I originally started using AccessPressLite and I loved it so much that I paid $49 to upgrade to AccessPress Pro and that is for lifetime use of that theme.
Nevertheless, you can choose from thousands of free themes in Worpress and use the one that works best for your personal style.
An Example of WordPress Plugins
Think of a WordPress Plugin sort of like you think of an App. The WordPress Plugin is already pre-programmed to do a function. I will give you an example:
All In One SEO is a plug in that you can download for free within WordPress. All In One SEO is a plug in that helps you with your Search Engine Optimization.
All In One SEO helps you prepare your Blog posts and pages to be better ranked within the search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. It provides a place for you to enter in your Meta Title and Meta Description. It also gives you a Social Sharing option so you will know how your posts will appear in Social Shares such as Pinterest or Facebook.
Without enhancing your website an optimizing it for the Search Engines, few people will be able to find it to see the beautiful work that you have done. This is what makes this plugin so important.
See the example below so you can see what the All In One SEO Plugin looks like. Once you install this plugin, this is what it will look like at the bottom of each of your posts and pages.
As you can see from the above example, it is very easy to optimize your posts and pages for the search engines with the All In One SEO Plugin. This is just one example of the thousands of different types of plugins available to you for free in WordPress.

WordPress is the absolute best free website builder. In my opinion, it is way better than any paid website builders too. I get my WordPress websites through Wealthy Affiliate.

WordPress installations without SiteRubix are much more cumbersome and time consuming.
